Swindon

Swindon's Old Town heralds from the original market town with quiet alleyways and traditional pubs now being seen alongside modern shops and contemporary bars; the 'new town', built between Swindon Hill and the railway works of the Great Western Railway of 1840, is now the town centre offering indoor and outdoor shopping, including the McArthur Glen Designer Outlet, modern cafes and restaurants. For lovers of the Arts, the Wyvern Theatre, Arts Centre and Swindon Museum and Art Gallery host a variety of events, and for some stunning scenery the 260 acre estate of Lydiard Park is a must-see: tour the State Rooms of Lydiard House, or marvel at the restoration of the Georgian Walled Garden, complete with topiary, fruit trees and flower displays. Discover the history of technology galore at the Museum of Computing or take a trip into the world of the Great Western Railway worker at the STEAM Museum, through reconstructions, interactive displays and original equipment.
